Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver

Return to Section 1115 Medicaid Waiver Resources Webpage


California’s 1115 Waiver Renewal, called Medi-Cal 2020, was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Dec. 30, 2015. Medi-Cal 2020 will guide us through the next five years as we work to transform the way Medi-Cal provides services to its more than 13 million members, and improve quality of care, access, and efficiency.
